The Seven Year Slip by Ashley Poston (on hiatus after this one for a while)

I just finished listening to The Seven Year Slip and I absolutely loved this book. It is no surprise really, I have been a huge fan of Ashley Poston since her Young Adult days. I reviewed Geekerella all the way back in 2017. Time flies sunnies. In some ways it feels like yesterday, but it has been 6 years already! A friend of mine from work reviewed this one and I asked her to be a guest reviewer. Since I decided to read this book because of her, I thought that was the best way to get you to also give Ashley Poston a try. Review by the lovely Lex Webber: With the middle of July comes longer days, fuller lakes and more time for lounging. For many people, it’s the best time of year as it is also one of the most nostalgic. Remembering good memories from the past while creating more is the perfect representation of summer. Personally, when I’m in the mood for a good book during the hot summer days, I’m always looking for one that embodies that energy.  The quintessential beach rea

Vandalar Concubines 1 to 4 by V. K. Ludwig

I don't read monster romance, I have tried a few and found it is not for me. All the tentacles and slime and whatnot are not for me at all. But I find that I enjoy alien romance a lot. Especially when the anatomy is not too different. This series was great. The exact amount of cheesiness and humor I wanted this past week. It reminds me very much of my favorite romance subgenre of all time - paranormal romance with shapeshifters, wolves and bears to be exact.  The first book in the series is Sign Here for Horns. Our heroine purchases herself an alien worker to help around the farm just to find out that he is a saikh. A saikh is a male concubine and trained to pleasure females in all ways possible. Their relationship is both funny and sweet. All he wants to do is pleasure her and all she wants (at least to start) is getting her farm working. Their different views on what and how to pleasure surely made for many funny scenes. Although slavery very obviously exists in this series, she

Well Played, Well Matched, and Well Travelled by Jen DeLuca (Well Met Series)

I absolutely love this series by Jen DeLuca but you know... one needs more hours in a day, so it took me a while to finally catch up and finish reading it. My favorite would still be Well Met , now followed by Well Matched . Well Played  is the last one I read. I know... it is horrid I read it out of order, but here we are. Needless to say, I already knew by this point who Dex was, who he was going to end up with, and a little bit about the confusion/lies in this book. It was a very well written story, as are all of Jen Deluca's books. But it was also the least exciting of all 4 books. And not because I already knew what was going to happen but because I didn't personally relate to the characters. They were all wonderful, they just weren't for me. The main relationship is basically catshifing at its best and she forgives him a little too fast. I don't know... good book, still gave a solid 3 1/2 stars, but in comparison with the other 3 books in the series it is lacking

Forget Me Not by Alexandra Oliva

My first thought upon finishing this book was that it would make a fantastic movie! The book tells the story of Linda, a gentle soul living in Seattle, alone and lonely. She spends most of her time locked up in her apartment with very little contact with the outside world. As the story progresses you find out why. Linda is a replacement child. Her mother found a way to 'make' her in order to replace her previous daughter that died. But Linda was not her, and could never replace her. So one day her mother just leaves.  Linda was left to raise herself at their walled-off property somewhere in rural Washington. Until one day, something makes her run, jump off the wall, and find a world that she didn't know existed and was definitely not ready for.  Years later in Seattle, when a new neighbor moves in, Anvi, Linda tries and hopes that she can maybe make a friend. That she can maybe be normal. Anvi introduces Linda to virtual reality and a whole different way to see things. But

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this
